OK…enough with the NO PAY…WORK FOR EXPOSURE….BARTER all of that.There is actually some people on here with some REAL skills, and if you seek out those people to make your project better, you are going to have to pay.No one in this time, and day can afford to work for free.I understand that there might be a LOT of people trying to do things on a shoe string, but at least pay people SOMETHING for their time and effort to make your dream/project look professional.I myself have invested a LOT of money into becoming very good in my craft as a Makeup Artist, and therefor I do expect to get payed, like EVERYONE else.
I think it’s wrong that people try to take advantage.And with people not wanting to pay Photographer’s, Film Makers, Stylist’s, Makeup Artist’s or whatever it may be, you are telling us that you are not respecting our craft.But yet you seek out our expertise.
So PLEASE people think about it next time when you put up a NO PAYMENT add, that you don’t want anyone to take advantage of you either.
P.S I’m sure that one of you NON paying people are gonna flag this as well…but you might as well make it your full time job then, as I AND my fellow hard working people are going to continue posting these till everyone put a STOP to the FREE labor…your time is OVER.
